Announcement: Donations Wanted for Midwestern Braille Volunteers Fundraiser

The Directory of St Louis blog likes to support our community, so when a good organization writes to us to post about an event to raise money to help people in need of assistance, we show our support.

A few dots helps the blind

The Midwestern Braille Volunteers would like to reach out to the local businesses to see if anyone would like to donate auction items for our upcoming Trivia Night that we will be hosted on March 22, 2014.

MBV is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that transcribes books into Braille for visually impaired students and adults. All the funds raised at the event will help translate books into Braille for visually impaired students and adults.

Items can be brought to Loretta or Karen at Midwestern Braille Volunteers or send us an email or call us and we can come by and pick it up. The auction items can be anything from that unwanted gift that you received and will never use or want to gift cards, wine, liquor, merchandise coupons, sporting event tickets, golf items, baskets for the auction items, etc.
